Check out the app for OS LG 250k. The is an app for the Ordinance Survey maps of UK. These are set up to wrk on the iPhone. I'm not sure if these are useable on a Garmin GPS but if you have an iPhone they might be a good second reference.
I'm doing LEJOG in Aug/Sept this year, might see you on the trail. Two of us will be using BF's.

> I'm looking for some GPS advice - I'm a total noob on that subject. I have a car GPS, it's a Garmin, and I have maps for US and Europe. I will be going on a trip through Wales in August, and am thinking perhaps I should get off paper and strip maps. The route will be put together by irondonkey.com, they said they would supply map files. Sooo... questions...
